You are here
Located between Tulum and Akumal, Tankah Bay is a quiet and peaceful place, just a little off the beaten path. Vacation rental homes on Tankah Bay enjoy nice big beachfronts with very few people on them and easy access to great snorkeling along the reef. This is perfect bay for kayaking and paddleboarding and most of the rental properties here provide one or the other. Tankay Bay has one restaurant, Casa Cenote, where you can grab a burger or some tacos and a cold drink. Many of the properties have onsite caretakers, including someone available to prepare meals.
Tankah Bay is also home to the Manatee Cenote, located just behind Casa Cenote Restaurant. Manatee Cenote offers snorkeling and a cool paddle board tour that we recommend.
Tankah Bay has a lively and vibrant coral reef which makes for great snorkeling. This also means some coral rock along the water line so we always recommend water shoes.
Tankah is located about 10 miles south of Akumal and about 5 miles north of Tulum. Grocery stores and other services are available in Tulum, which is an easy drive. For this reason, we always recommend a rental car to our guests staying along Tankah Bay.
One more note, the pace here is laid back and the bay is tranquil. Apart from the area around the cenote and restaurant there are very few people, only guests in neighboring villas. You'll love it here :)
